MOUNT OLIVE- The planning session for the 2011 Pitt County gift support dinner for University of Mount Olive will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, August 22, at Reedy Branch OFWB Church near Winterville.

The College, sponsored by the Convention of Original Free Will Baptists, has locations in Mount Olive, New Bern, Wilmington, Goldsboro, Research Triangle Park, Washington and Jacksonville.  For more information, visit
